1967 or 68

If I know I want a 68 first 67 second but find a 69 should I settle?

I'm thinking I'll continue to wait for a 68, I've got 10K cash and have been looking hard to find the right car.

I was hoping to find a 68 decent motor, decent interior and decent paint. That I can have fun in and progress on a restoration in my own time.

Your thoughts?

Jason

Re: 1967 or 68

I've seen plenty two states away.... One is the 68 I posted in what's it worth.

It had PS, PB, looked clean but is in Tennessee and 2800 more than I want to spend.

One of my problems is, I don't have the experience to know what I'm looking at. I need someone to help me that's been around the block. To help me when I see one I "REALLY" like.

In texas there are two 69's. but they look a bit rough and are 11,000 and 12,000.

Re: 1967 or 68

A couple of years ago those 69s would have sold for 20,000. With the economy down you can get some pretty good buys on all three years. I owned several 69s over the years and when I sold my last one I was looking for a 69 project. At that time everyone thought they could get BJ prices for their cars. So I dropped down to a 68. I picked it up in the same ballpark as you are looking and have slowly worked at it. I am not into show cars anymore and just wanted a nice cruise night car. I had to replace the rear trunk pan and frame rails but I managed to do that for a reasonable price and all new sheet metal. Now it is a real fun car. See the picture in my signature. I think you will be able to get "more" car for your money in a 68.

I have owned 3 69 Z/28s: Garnet Red 30,000 mi unrestored.

Re: 1967 or 68

i think if you really want a 68 then get a 68 either way there all sweet cars but yes we all do have our own preference. it took me a long time to find the right one but mine was just for a frame off with as much factory metal still intact as possible. i think youll find a pretty nice 68 for that kind of money right now w the market being down. maybe not a show car but a sweet drive around not woried too much about getting a little road dirt on fun car!!! Good luck man keep us posted.

67 that is asleep right now but is somehow my dream

Re: 1967 or 68

If you have your heart and mind set on a 68, then get a 68, Dont settle, you will not truly be happy witht the car. You might jump on a nice 69 driver, and do some trading. As far not knowing what to look for, post pics and questions here. If you were closer to KY, I would look at cars with you all day long...

Re: 1967 or 68

You've done well Grasshopper, '68 is the correct year.........HA!

I believe the answer is how much patience you have to look/research for a '68 and how bad the money is burning a hole in your pocket. Any year of 1st Gen is good to own, just depends on how you would like it to be optioned.

Make a list of those options, 1st, 2nd, and 3rd choices, and continue looking.

I almost agree with the years in order above. But my choice would be 68, 69, 67, 70, 2010-11.

If its a 68 you want, then wait to find the right one.

Prices are down, so keep looking.

Re: 1967 or 68

I thought they stopped making real Camaro's after 67??????








J/K. Sorry but I just couldn't resist. Like stated above we all have our favorite year(s). I've owned 6 67's, 2 68's and 2 69's so you can see what year I prefer.
